Oops!... We goofed! 

Terry DeWald '62 brought to our atten- 
tion that we misidentified the woman in 
the white LVC blazer pictured with "Hot 
Dog" Frank Aftosmes on the inside-front 
cover of the Spring 1989 issue of the 
Valley He points out that this 1962 
graduate is not Regina Juno Deka '62, but 
rather Annette Kurr Morris '62. Thanks 
Terry!

A New Campus Plan: 

Meeting Tomorrow's Challenges 



by M.J. Bishop '84 

"■\ T 7e have all heard that the only con- 

V V slant in life is change The key to 
success over time is creative management 
of that change to achieve goals." That, ac- 
cording to President John A. Synodinos 
is the guiding principle behind Lebanon 
Valley's campus development plan, now 
in full swing. 

Chances are, the next time you return 
to campus, you will find that things seem 
different, but it will take a close look to 
see all the changes. 

Sure, the large, blue and white Arnold 
Sports Center now proudly rises above 
the railroad tracks behind Funkhouser 
and Keister Halls, there is an elegant new 
dining room where the East cafeteria (or 
the "dark side") used to be, the old ash 
tree that stood in the "Social Quad" final- 
ly died and was removed for safety 
reasons, and grassy lawns now cover the 
areas west of Silver Hall where Saylor 
Hall once stood and north of Lynch 
Gymnasium where West and Sheridan 
Halls (Knights House) once stood. 

But there is something else here, a 
quality of care and attention. Almost in- 
explicably, one senses as much as sees 
that the grounds seem cleaner, the 
buildings seem larger, and the College 
seems brighter 

Don't dismiss this impression as sim- 
ply a more nostalgic perspective of your 
beloved alma mater. .there are indeed, 
many subtle changes occurring all over 
campus. Overgrown shrubs are being cut 
back or removed, trim is being pointed, 
flowers are being planted, and brick is 
being cleaned and re-pointed, all as a 
part of Lebanon Valley's effort to put its 
"best foot forward" while stepping into 
the 1990s and preparing for the 21st 
century. 

"It is the Trustees' goals," President 
Synodinos stated, "that the look and feel 
of the physical plant be a reflection of the 
high order of academic life which is and 
has been going on at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege When the current phase of the Col- 
lege's $7 million plus campus improve- 
ment plan is complete in about a year, 
fully one third of the campus floor space 
will be new, remodeled, or refurbished." 

Soon after beginning his work as Col- 
lege President, Mr Synodinos observed 



that, in addition to upgrading college 
buildings, attention to the campus land- 
scape was a high priority for Lebanon 
Valley as it sought to articulate its 
academic mission. ..especially consider- 
ing the diminishing pool of 18-year-olds 
over the next decade 

"Re-landscaping the campus is one 
relatively inexpensive way to make a 
positive statement while causing people 
to feel better about the College," President 
Synodinos explained. "If we upgrade the 
facility's look and make changes in the 
campus' atmosphere, the College not on- 



ly becomes more attractive to prospec- 
tive students, but we also improve the 
quality of life for our current students 
and staff." 

"However;' President Synodinos went 
on to say, "landscaping is not simply a 
matter of planting trees, shrubs, and 
flowers or spreading mulch. There is 
much more to it. As we re-landscape, we 
must take into account the size, use, and 
location of buildings, how people move 
through space, lighting, safety, color, and 
even societal changes." To help ac- 
complish this task, Derek and Edson 




Productive construc- 
tion workers put a 
new front on the 
west facade of Lynch 
Gymnasium. 




Associates, a Lititz-based landscape ar- 
chitectural and land planning firm is 
developing a master campus plan. 

The firm's first order of business was to 
improve the College's attractiveness and 
visibility to the "passer-by." 

"The Colleges number one landscape- 
design problem is that the campus can't 
be seen from any of the access roads into 
Annville," said Bob Derek, a partner at 
Derek and Edson Associates. "We need to 
work toward making sure that ever)'one 
who arrives from all four directions can 
see it." 

Work has already begun to make minor 
changes that will create a better 
"streetscape" for the College along Rt. 
934, or White Oak Street. 
•The old factory that has alternately 
housed the sciences, maintenance, and 
security offices over the years is slated 
to be converted into residential con- 
dominiums as the first major project of 
the College's new for-profit subsidiary. 
•The St. Paul Lutheran Church building, 
which the College has owned since 
1971, will get a much needed "face lift" 
to prepare it for possible conversion in- 
to a conference center, museum or 
similar facility. 
•The Pencil Building (formerly the 
Registrar's Office) will soon be renovat- 
ed to become a full-blown child care 
center with "tot lot." 
•The knitting mill (at the corner of 
White Oak and West Sheridan) was 
purchased by the College in January 
and torn down to make room for 
parking. 
•Construction is underway to put a 
"front" on the back of Lynch Gymnasium 
while much of the interior is being con- 
verted for classroom use. 



•And, finally, a gateway to the College will 

be constructed on Sheridan Avenue at 

the corner closest to the Mund College 

Center 

"These changes should help to make 
Rt. 934 more visibly the border of a col- 
lege campus," said Mr Derek. 

To improve the College's appearance 
along North College Avenue, Mr Derek 
suggests more subde changes. "We need 
to remove some of the overgrown shrub- 
bery that is blocking the Carnegie and 
Administration Buildings, or the 'historic 
campus,' from view. By removing and 
diminishing the size of existing shrub- 
bery around these buildings, they will 
tend to look larger, cleaner, and brighter 
— as a result, they will be much more 
visible to travellers along College 
Avenue." 

In addition to improving the College's 
visibility, when designing a campus land- 
scape plan with students in mind, atten- 
tion must be given to aesthetics. 

"First and foremost," said Mr Derek, 
"we need to improve the lighting. If the 
campus is to be used by students in the 
evening — for either academic or residen- 
tial reasons — it must look as good at 
night as it does during the day" Mr 
Derek's plan is to install on existing light- 
posts new, traditional globe-style lamps 
that will cast light upward mto the sur- 
rounding trees. 

"Lighting the trees will also help the 
campus look bigger and more open at 
night," said Mr Derek. Although the exact 
style lamp is still under consideration, 
Mr Derek is very sure about one thing, 
"these lamps will use white light — not 
yellow. Yellow tends to make green leaves 
look brown." 



Lebanon Valley Colleges new all-weather Iratk is 
sure to be a hit for future athletic seasons. 



As the re-landscaping proceeds, atten- 
tion will also be given to color "The 
College already has a wide variety of 
plantings. As we move and add trees, 
shrubs, and flowers, we will be careful to 
balance color so as to create an 
aesthetically pleasing effect." 

In addition to attracting new students 
to Lebanon Valley, a carefully planned 
landscape design that factors in safety, 
noise, and programming will also help 
improve the quality of life for the 
College's existing students, 

Makmg students comfortable and safe 
on campus is a major concern for the 
College landscapers. "We must give 
thoughtful and sympathetic attention to 
social changes that keep people from 
feeling safe while walking outside at 
night. For example, we will move the 
large evergreens planted about campus 
that create dark spaces and can't be seen 
through," said Mr Derek. 

In addition, plans are being considered 
to make changes that will give 
pedestrians the "right-of-way" in the 
crosswalk across Sheridan Avenue be- 
tween the Miller Chapel and the Mund 
College Center "We need to create a 
situation along Sheridan Avenue that 
really slows down traffic. Although 
Sheridan is not a College-owned street, 
we can give drivers subtle hints to slow 
down or even to detour around Sheridan 
...like the entrance gate at Rt. 934, a speed 
bump, and a stop sign at the crosswalk," 
said Mr Derek. 

Re-landscaping can also improve the 
quality of current students' lives by 
reducing the amount of noise from the

make way for a landscaped parking facility. 



railroad tracks which bisect the north 
end of campus and the athletic fields. 
"We plan to build a large, landscaped em- 
bankment along the tracks where park- 
ing now exists and move the parking to 
the south side of that alley behind Mary 
Green, Hammond, Keister, and 
Funkhouser Halls. With evergreens 
planted on top of the mound to block the 
tracks' sight and sound, we should be 
able to minimize the effect the railroad 
has on the quality of students" lives in 
those dorms." 

Finally, while designing the new land- 
scape plan, careful consideration is being 
given to College programming; where are 
buildings located and how will they be 
used?; do we need a gathering place, and 
where?; can the grounds become a part 
of the College's academic facilities?; 
where do we need parking and how 
much? 

Among the ideas being considered: 
redesigning the Lynch building as the 
center of interest in the "academic quad"; 
building a gazebo for outdoor concerts; 
creating plaza areas where new walkways 
come together; and planting a botanical 
garden behind Centre Hall to provide 
specimens of fauna in an attractive 
ambience 

Thus, although you probably do look 
back on your alma mater and your col- 
lege days with growing fondness, the 
good impression the campus will make 
on you during your next visit cannot be 
entirely attributed to your nostalgic 
perspective — Lebanon Valley College is, 
indeed, shaping up to meet the 
challenges of this century's closing 
decade and the new millennium

needed "face lift" to

A 



City Backyard 

by Helen Ross Russell '43 

How can anyone who grew up on a 
farm, who loves outdoor activities, 
who has speciaHzed in environmental 
education be happy in a city?" 

The question is most familiar— we 
must have heard it hundreds of times in 
the 18 years since we left New England 
and purchased a house in the city. The 
answer is simple, "We have a backyard." 
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have 
a yard 100 feet long by 18 feet wide, but 
backyards, front yards, land around 
apartment houses, parks and mini-parks 
exist in every metropolitan area. These 
bits of earth, free from the covering of 
bricks, asphalt or concrete, can enrich 
our lives in many ways. 

We start our days standing at our 
bedroom window and looking down on 
our yard and our neighbors" yards. 

From the first snowdrops, crocuses and 
Christmas rose of March through the last 
chrysanthemums of November there is a 
steady parade of color But winter view- 
ing can be equally beautiful when 
sunlight is fragmented to rainbow colors 
by snow or ice, when jasmine flowers in 
December, when snow mounted on 
shrubs and dried flower stalks fills the 
yard with soft sculptures. 

There is drama to watch, too. We once 
spent a good half hour in ringside seats 
watching the squirrels give a cat a ner- 
vous breakdown. It started with a pair of 
squirrels chasing each other along the 
fence tops, a normal wintertime frolic; 
down on the ground a neighbor's big 
tomcat entered the game with anything 
but playful intentions. For a while we 
wondered if the squirrels were aware of 
his presence but when he leaped up on 
the fence and the squirrels used the 
mulberry branch bridge to move to safety 
and then to return and continue the 
frolic, it was evident that they were enjoy- 
ing cat-baiting. Eventually one of the 
squirrels tired of the game and approach- 
ed the patio where we had scattered 
some unpopable popcorn. Stealthily the 
cat crept along the fence and hid behind 
a large planter, less than 30 inches from 
the feeding squirrel. Except for his 
lashing tail he was motionless. Then he 
inched forward; the space between them 
narrowed, 25, then 20 inches. The 
squirrel went on feeding. Suddenly the 
cat dashed— so did the squirrel. With one 
flying leap it climbed to the top of a 



small garden sculpture. The cat crouched 
at the foot of it. 

The squirrel continued chewing its 
mouthful of corn, then deliberately turn- 
ed downward right toward the waiting 
cat. "Oh, no" we groaned and then in 
disbelief, "Oh, nol" For half a second the 
squirrel was airborne on the way to the 
cat's back. The cat jumped several feet off 
the ground, dislodging the squirrel in the 
process, and ran pell-mell with the 
squirrel in swift pursuit. A minute later 
the squirrel again leaped and landed on 
the cat. Again it was dumped on the 
ground just long enough to make a third 
jump and a landing on the now frantic 
cat. As the gray and brown and black fur 
ball rolled on the frozen grass the cat 
suddenly burst forth, scaled the fence 
and disappeared. The squirrel returned 
to feeding 

For about 10 minutes the cat vented his 
anger and frustration by challenging a 
young cat in a neighboring yard. Then 
having convinced himself, by putting it 
to rout, that he was master of all he 
surveyed he stealthily crept along the 
fence and took up his position behind 
the planter The squirrel shifted position 
and went on chewing. The cat climbed 
into the planter and looked over the rim 
but quickly realized that it was an un- 
satisfactory launch pad. So he resumed 
his position on the ground with head 



sticking out from behind the planter 
Fmally he pulled all his muscles together 
and catapulted his body toward the 
feeding squirrel. Fast, but not fast 
enough, for the squirrel, with a single 
motion, had vaulted to the top of the 
garden sculpture. 

The cat skidded to a stop, his tail 
twitched in agitation while every hair of 
his body stood on-end. The squirrel spit 
out a corn hull, the cat stood up, made a 
right angle turn and walked down the 
center of the yard with his body express- 
ing disdain. 

While cats and squirrels are the largest 
animals that come to our yard, they are 
generally not the most exciting, nor do 
they provide the only drama. 

Some of the 42 different birds we have 
watched in our backyard are exciting ac- 
cidentals like the bittern that spent an 
entire day alternately standing in the 
melt water puddle at the far end of our 
yard and flying into the mulberry tree 
and hiding when 1 went out with a 
camera; or the female redstart that spent 
almost a week in September of 1980 
feeding in the shrubbery at the end of 
our yard, preening and displaying in full 
sight as we lunched with guests under 
the mulberr)' tree. 

Moments like that are exciting, but 
perhaps even more satisfying is the 
regular appearance of towhees scratching 




A Manhattan "city backyard 



in the yard each spring, the late fall settl- 
ing in of juncoes for the winter, and the 
spring stopover of cowbirds and red- 
winged blackbirds and the regular ap- 
pearance of white-throated sparrows. Fox 
sparrows, chipping sparrows, and yellow- 
throats each come in their own time and 
season. A regular flight school starts in 
June with successive classes of fledgling 
robins, blue jays, starlings and mock- 
mgbirds trying their wings from the top 
of the fence. 

The regular appearance of the ruby- 
throated hummingbird when the 
bergamot is in bloom provided us with 
our most exciting bird adventure. I was 
cutting coral bells (Heuchem), when we 
heard the whirring of wings. The hum- 
mer was sipping nectar from the flowers 
that I had cut and was holding in my left 
hand. Slowly I raised the bouquet and 
the bird followed it until the bird and I 
were practically eye to eye. 

We do not feed the birds but we con- 
sciously plant bushes, annuals and 
perennials that will provide a variety of 
seeds, berries and shelter 

Once when a bad storm hit the area, 
the year when the brown thrasher spent 
the entire winter in our yard, we put out 
emergency rations until the natural ones 
were again available. The first guests to 
arrive were a pair of mourning doves 
which sat on the fence most of the morn- 
ing studying the situation, while starlings 
watched from trees in our yard and 
neighboring yards. Once the mourning 
doves started feeding, three juncoes, two 
bluejays, a mockingbird, rwo pigeons, a 
white-throated sparrow and a downy 
woodpecker moved in. Finally the brown 
thrasher, though he was slow in arriving, 
was the only bird who dared eat with the 
starlings. If they came near he reached 
over and pecked them, and they retreated 
to the other end of the food supply. 

Besides providing food for birds our 
yard has a great variety of flowers. It also 
provides fresh vegetables: lettuce, 
radishes, onions in early spring, 
tomatoes until frost. Then there are the 
weeds: milkweed, purslane^ lamb's 
quarters, field sorrel, amaranth, 
chickweed, a ready source of samples for 
wild food lectures and variety in our own 
meals. 

Like any other piece of land managed 
on a multi-use principle our yard is a 
thing of beauty, a joy to a wide variety of 
animals, a delightful outdoor living room 
for entertaining a few people or several 
dozen. It fills our life in the city with a 
constant contact with the natural world.

A Confirmed Naturalist 
Dr. Helen Ross RusseU '43 



Dr Helen Ross Russell '43, born on a 
farm near Myerstown, PA, was a "confirm- 
ed naturalist" by the time she started 
grade school. In the eleventh grade, she 
knew the excitement of seeing something 
she had composed in print — a 
crossword puzzle based on biblical 
characters that she sold for $L 

Since then, she has pursued a 
fascinating and proHfic career as one of 
the country's first female 
naturalist/authors. 

"In 1949, when I was finishing my 
Ph.D., I found a letter in the placement 
office that said: '[w]e are looking for a 
man, with a Ph.D., trained in what used 
to be called nature study with at least 8 
years of public school teaching..! I ap- 
plied for the job and got it. The president 
of Fitchburg State Teachers CoUege, who 
had written the job description, said he 
never dreamt that there would be a 
woman available" 

Her lengthy resume includes positions 
with the Wave Hill Center for En- 
vironmental Studies, the Manhattan 
Country School, the American Nature 
Study Society, and the American 
Museum of Natural History. Her boun- 



tiful LVC alumnae file includes more 
than 300 article clippings from publica- [ 
tions such as The Communicator, Bio- M 
Science, Nature Study, Canadian Audubon,^ 
The Instructor, Ranger Rick, National Parks 
Magazine, Britannicajr., Ski Magazine, 
and this reprint from The New York State 
Conservationist. At last count she had 
published 15 books for all ages on 
wildlife and has received at least as many 
honors and awards including an 
honorary doctor of humane letters from 
Lebanon Valley in 1973. 

When asked about her Lebanon Valley ; 
experience, Dr Russell wrote, "I owe a 
special debt to two dedicated Lebanon 
Valley teachers, Dr S.H. Derickson (Prof. 
Derry), and Dr Andrew Bender who gave 
unstindngly of their time and talents. 
Without their enthusiasm for teaching 
and concern for students 1 would never 
have had the opportunity to complete a 
B.A. in science and go on to graduate 
school."

A Farmer's Creed 

by Paul Keene '32 

After receiving a B.A. from Lebanon 
Valley College in 1932 and an M. A. from 
Yale University in 1936. Paul Keene spent a 
few years teaching both m this countiy and 
at a mission school in India. 

In 1946, after returning to the U.S.. Paul 
Keene and his wife. Betty, bought a 100-plus- 
acre fann in the hills of central Penn- 
sylvania. It was there, on Walnut Acres, that 
Keene sought a new existence in coopera- 
tion with nature. Inspired by his experiences 
in India and his conveisations with Mahat- 
ma Gandhi. Keene began to Jorge a simple 
life based on natural principles. 

Fear Not to Sow Because oj the Birds: 
Essays on Countiy Living and Natural Far- 
ming from Walnut Acres, written by Paul 
Keene and edited by Dorothy Z. Seymour 
(published by The Globe Pequot Press. 
Chester, CT 06412), is a compilation of 
Keene's essays that have appeared over the 
years in the mail-order catalogue that sells 
his natural-food products. In these reflec- 
tions he records his obser\'ations on nature 
and the seasons and people's iircfutable 
bonds to them. 

The following article is an e.xcerpt from 
this book, reprinted by pennission from The 
Globe Pequot Press and Mr Keene. 

Birds sing everywhere, from very early 
morning until the sun retires; robins 
and wrens and cardinals, orioles and cat- 
birds and other assorted small feathered 
persons. But oh those purple martins. 1 
hope you too have some of them flying 
around your house. An unbelievable li- 
quid gurgling fills the air in the vicinity 
of their nest. It is one of the most uplif- 
ting sounds I know. Perhaps some of the 
next world's music will be spiritually 
akin to these glorious chirps of praise. 

More than three hundred years ago the 
Moghul emperor Shah Jehan is reported 
to have said of the Vale of Kashmir, "If 
ever there is a paradise on earth, it is 
here, it is here, it is here." He should have 
seen Walnut Acres on a rain-soaked, in- 
tensely greening, sunny late-May 
morning. 

But we are not a paradise on endless 
bliss, of utter security, of untroubled 
spirit. Each day, each hour the challenge 
is new. We constantly probe at the edges 
of the universe with each new day to 
learn how best to match needs to cir- 
cumstances. The low fields are too wet? 
Go to the hills, where underground 
waters subside sooner None of the 
plowed fields can be worked because of

recent rains? Spread manure on the sod- 
den ground. The carrot fields had beating 
rains upon them, making it almost im- 
possible tor the young plants to push 
through? Change plans at once; replant 
in another location, before it is too late. 

Change plans on the spur of the mo- 
ment. Make up your mind immediately 
to meet unexpected conditions. Shilt the 
emphasis of the whole enterprise for a 
day or a week or a year Weigh, balance, 
adjust, accommodate. Make mental and 
physical notes every day on how you will 
do this operation better next year Keep a 
thousand eyes open to evaluate and 
decide on the way you will meet each 
new situation, each new day. Be a com- 
puter with a sense of humor, a 
philosophical spirit, feeding yourself un- 
conscious data, settling finally on the 
readout that seems best at the moment 
when needed. 

No time for inflexibility, for the aging 
spirit, for quibbling with fate. When the 
cow has died, one goes on from there. In- 
stead of cursing the flat tire, one hustles 
to repair it at once. Even on the days 
when everything goes wrong, one comes 
up smiling at the supper table. 

For all this exercise of the spirit is the 
glory of farming. It stretches one almost 
all the time to the utmost. It pushes and 
pummels and molds. Body and mind and 



spirit remain lean and strong and 
stalwart. Life becomes a constant battle 
of wits, a rolling with the punches, a stay- 
ing on top of circumstances. 

The attempt is not to get ahead of 
Nature; it is rather to keep in tune with 
her fickle hourly vagaries, dancing when 
she plays a joyous tune, somber when she 
weeps. For underneath, one feels the 
tremendous strength of an unshakable 
security and promise, of which the hour- 
ly changes are but the minutest surface 
movements. One discovers in farming 
more about what life is really like than in 
any other occupation. We're at the roots, 
the source. 

Out of one's touch with the soil grows 
an all-pervading warmth that rises all 
about one, enwrapping, heartening, and 
ennobling, speaking softly to one's spirit 
words of calm and hope. And so one 
comes to match this day not only with an 
endless chain of years, until in the light 
of a lifetime the infinitesimal bumps of 
seeming adversity are as nothing. That 
which today appears as playing a losing 
game is in the end, in the face of eternity, 
nothing less than ultimate victory. We are 
blessed with the meeting of our deepest 
need, the certain knowledge that the 
universe is good. What better can this life 
offer? If ever there were a paradise on 
Earth, it is here.

Back from China, 
Predicts Another 
Revolt in 2 Years 



by Anne McGraw 
Associated Press 

ANNVILLE, Pa. (AP)-An American 
professor who taught in Nanjing, China, 
during the student uprising there this 
spring predicted another revolt will oc- 
cur within the next two years. 

The revolt, he said, will be fueled by 
continued student unrest and supported 
by the Chinese people. 

Arthur L. Ford, Jr, an English professor 
at Lebanon Valley College, a small, 
private college in southcentral Penn- 
sylvania, taught at Nanjing University 
during the 1988-89 school year on a 
Fulbright Scholar Grant. 

(Ford and his wife, the former Mary 
Ellen Reiser, are both natives of Colum- 
bia. They spent the 1984-85 school year 
in Syria where Ford taught at the Univer- 
sity of Damascus, also on a Fulbright 
grant.)

Square, Beijing, China, just before the June 
fourth demonstrations. Portrayed in the

overthrown.

against the Chinese communist govern- 
ment grow into massive demonstrations, 
class boycotts and hunger strikes in June. 

The protests in Nanjing never reached 
the violence that erupted in Beijing, 600 
miles south, but the Fords nonetheless 
cut their stay short by two weeks and 
sought safety in fiong Kong. They feared 
the Chinese Army would come into the 
square in Nanjing and begin firing on 
students and bystanders as they had in 
Beijing. 

"It was a time of considerable anxiety 
for us, not for our personal safety but for 
the saftey of our students," Ford said. "We 
listened very carefully for gun shots for 
about five days. Fortunately, they never 
came." 

Despite the thousands of deaths, subse- 
quent executions and continued harass- 
ment by the government, the students 
will resurrect their protests, Ford said. 
Since the end of the revolution, students 
have been meeting with peasants in the 
fields, forming an underground that will 
form the basis of the next uprising, he 
said. 

"I'm absolutely convinced that it's not 
over" he said. 

Even though the students were terribly 
depressd over the events in Beijing and 
elsewhere in China, "they said they had 
not lost," Ford said. 

"They said this was a temporary set- 
back," he said. "That they would now do 
things like going out to the countryside 
and educating the peasants, getting the 



people understanding their point of view, 
so that next time the people would be 
able to support them." 

If they do revolt again, the students will 
probably be less naive and more organiz- 
ed. But next time, they must find a leader, 
some kind of rallying point. Ford said. 

"The problem with the movement, I 
think, was that it was a movement which 
had tremendous momentum, but it had 
no head to it," he said. 

"There was nobody around which they 
could coordinate their efforts, no 
charismatic figure ...that they could say, 
'Here is our leader,' and that person 
would have some legitimacy because of 
it." 

Ford said the Communist Party in 
China had "lost its legitimacy" because of 
its use of violence and oppression. 

Neither Ford nor his wife actively par- 
ticipated in the uprising, but did spend 
hours before the event talking to students 
about democracy, American life and their 
dreams for China. 

"I felt it was inappropriate for 
somebody not part of that community to 
engage or participate in the movement 
for a couple of reasons," he said. 

"First of all it was their movement. Se- 
cond, I knew that we were getting out and 
so for us to go in there and say 'Rah, rah 
go ahead, do this and do this,' and then 
leave while they take the consequences 
of that, I thought was unethical and so we 
did not do that."

Actxiarial Science Graduate 
Wins Fulbright Scholarship 

In March, Leslie Mario, a January 1989 
actuarial science graduate. Mount 
Lebanon, PA, was awarded a Fulbright 
Scholarship for study in Scotland during 
the 1989-90 academic year Ms. Mario is 
the eighth Fulbright Scholar in the last 14 
years at Lebanon Valley College and the 
second to be selected for a United 
Kingdom Scholarship. 

In Scotland, Ms. Mario will study 
mathematical models of Acquired Im- 
mune Deficiency Syndrome, or AIDS, 
concentrating on the effects the disease 
has had and will have on the insurance 
industry. She will do her work at Heriot- 
Watt University in Edinburgh in the 
department of actuarial mathematics and 
statistics. 

Ms. Mario was one of over 400 
Fulbright candidates from throughout 
the nation who were competing for 26 
Fulbright Scholarships in the United 
Kingdom. The formidable odds represent 
a better than 16:1 ratio of applicants to 
awards. 

The purpose of the Fulbright Grant is 
to increase mutual understanding bet- 
ween the people of the United States and 
other countries through the exchange of 
persons, knowledge, and skills. Fulbright 
Grants are funded under terms of the 
Mutual Educational and Cultural Ex- 
change Act of 1961 through an annual 
appropriation made by Congress to USIA

and by foreign governments, universities, 
corporations, and private donors. 

"The work required to prepare for the 
scholarship was very difficult," said Ms. 
Mario. "Usually a proposal of study 
begins in May. Since I only began in 
September, I was severely pressed to meet 
the October 27th deadline I knew in the 
beginning that I needed a unique and 
'eye-catching' subject and that there was a 
good chance that I may end up not 
receiving the scholarship." 

Ms. Mario, who transferred from the 
University of Pittsburgh to begin her 
sophomore year at Lebanon Valley, came 
here "because of the outstanding reputa- 
tion of its actuarial science program and 
the close relationship between the facul- 
ty and the students. Had I continued to 
attend a- large university, I probably 
wouldn't have even known about this 
scholarship." 

Lebanon Valley College is considered 
to have one of the premiere actuarial 
science programs in the United States. 
"The program is excellent because it 
stresses the liberal arts education over 
the technical aspects," said Ms. Mario.

Rodent Runner 

Alf leads the pack in College's rat race 



by Joe Koscinski 
Lebanon Bureau, Harrisburg Patriot 

Look out, Carl Lewis. You've got 
competition. 

The newest world-class runner hap- 
pens to be a furry, tan lightning bolt nam- 
ed Alf. But he isn't the alien of television 
fame. 

Alf is a rat. 

He isn't just any old rat. Alf was a gold- 
medal winner in Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege's inaugural "Rodent Olympics" held 
on the campus on May 5th. 

The tongue-in-cheek exercise was part 
of the College's Learning and Memory 
psychology course and included fierce 
competition in maze racing and the 
10-yard dash. Due to time constraints, 
the rat "Slam Dunk" competition was 
cancelled. 

Alf set the pace with a winning time of 
7.78 seconds in the maze after training 
with Kathy Luckenbill, a sophomore 
from Bemville Ms. Luckenbill said she 
spent a half-hour each day of the prior 
week teaching Alf how to run the maze 

"I started training him by laying food in 
the maze in the direction he should be 
going," she said. "He learned it real fast." 

His first run was a disappointing two 
minutes, but he eventually reduced his 
time to about nine seconds in practice, 
Ms. Luckenbill said. 



Dr Thomas Vilberg, the course instruc- 
tor, said students had been working with 
rats throughout the semester to unders- 
tand how animals and people learn and 
remember information. 

Students began by teaching the rats to 
press levers to receive food as a reward. 
Other memory experiments followed and 
students finally "trained" their miniature 
athletes to perform in the exercise 

"The students become very attached to 
their rats and even give their rats names," 
Professor Vilberg said. "As a result of that, 
about one-third of the rats are taken 
home at the end of the year" 

Although the rats probably didn't know 
it, there was quite a bit of incentive to do 
well in the competition. 

For the student "trainers" a winning rat 
meant extra credit points in the course 
For the rats, maybe the stakes were a little 
bit higher: win or possibly become snake 
food. 

Professor Vilberg said winning rats will 
be bred to produce more subjects for 
memory experiments for the next school 
year The losers will go to ZooAmerica in 
Hershey where they are used to feed en- 
dangered species. 

"We only want the smart rats," Pro- 
fessor Vilberg commented.

Degrees Conferred: 

National Public Radio Correspondents 
Speak at Commencement Ceremonies 




National public radio correspondents Nina 
Totenberg (left) and Linda Wertheimer were 
awarded Doctor of Humane Letters degrees at 
Lebanon Valley College's 120th Commencement. 

President John A. Synodinos conferred 
four honorar)' degrees at Lebanon Valley 
College's 120th Commencement on May 
14, 1989. 

Doctor of Humane Letters degrees were 
conferred on Nina Totenberg and Linda 
Wertheimer, this year's commenceinent 
speakers and National Public Radio's 
"Morning Edition," "All Things Con- 
sidered," and "'Weekend Edition" 
correspondents. 

Ms. Wertheimer, National Public

Ms. Totenberg is NPR's legal affairs cor- 
respondent. In 1987, she received the 
"Media Merit Award" from the Associa- 
tion of Trial Lawyers for continued ex- 
cellence in legal reporting. 

"There are a lot of ways to be rich and 
there are many kinds of compensation 
that are available to you in this world. 
Money is only one of them," said Ms. 
Wertheimer as she and Ms. Totenberg 
spoke to the 160 graduates about the 
future that awaited them after Lebanon 
Valley College. 

"How are you going to conduct the rest 
of your lives?" asked Ms. Totenberg. "Will 
the choices that you make today really 
make )'ou happy twenty years from now? 
Are you stuck with the choices that you 



make now? Will you turn around twenty 
years from now and wonder if there is a 
way out; a way to live differently for 
yourself and for your countr)'?" 

Both speakers challenged the Class of 
1989 to serve their communities and to 
strive for positive change in today's 
world. They also stressed that the best 
parts of their lives are yet to come. 

"These are not the best years of your 
life by a long shot," said Wertheimer, "at 
least not in my experience. Work is ahead 
of you and that, I think, will provide you 
with the most satisfs'ing part of your life." 

In addition to Ms. Totenberg's and Ms. 
Wertheimer's honorar)- degrees. Presi- 
dent Synodinos conferred the Doctor of 



Divinity degree upon Felton E. May, the

research chemist with almost four 
decades of ser\'ice to public health, and a 
long-time member and past chairperson 
of the College's Board of Trustees. 



Flannery Named Head Basketball 
Coach at Lebanon Valley College 



On July 5, 1989, the Lebanon Valley 
College men's basketball program em- 
barked on a new era when Pat Flannery, 
then assistant at Drexel University, was 
appointed to replace retiring head coach, 
Gordie Foster 

"There is a definite commitment by the 
administration at Lebanon Valley College 
to produce a quality basketball program," 
said Flannery. "1 believe in Lebanon 
Valley College and 1 believe in the con- 
ference they're in." 

Flanner)' has been an assistant coach at 
Drexel University the past five seasons. 
Previous to Drexel, he served as an assis- 
tant coach for two years at Bucknell 
University and one year at William and 
Mar)'. 

At Drexel, Flanner)' was responsible for 
the coordination of all student-athlete 
recruiting for the Dragons. He also ran 
the team conditioning and weight pro- 
grams in addition to his on-the-floor 
coaching duties. 

At the July press conference introduc- 
ing Flannery, the new men's basketball 
coach was asked if there is a trend for 
Division 1 assistants, like himself and 
George Petrie, formerly at Bucknell (now 
head coach at Gettysburg), skipping the 
limelight to coach small school players? 

"I had the opportunity to go to Mar- 
quette and Northwestern as an assistant," 
he replied. "I was looking for an oppor- 



tunity to run my own progratn. My goal 
in coaching was to one day be a head 
coach. Lebanon Valley College has given 
me that chance. 1 don't know if it's a trend 
as much as the person being right for the 
situation. The game is the game The dif- 
ference between major college players 
and small college players may be an inch, 
or a half-step, but there are plenty of guys 
who can coach at any level." 

Prior to his coaching career, Planner)' 
was the floor leader on two of Bucknell's 
winningest cage teams. He established 
several career, season, and single-game 
assist records from 1976 to 1980. Flan- 
nery received his bachelor's degree in 
1980 and a master's degree in 1983 from 
Bucknell.

Men's Basketball Team Returns 
from European Trip 



The men's basketball team returned 
from a successful 14-day tour of Europe 
where they played a nine-game schedule 
against teams from Germany, Holland, 
Belgium, France, and Luxembourg. 

"Awesome!" exlaimed Scott Barlup '90 
when asked how the trip went. "The best 
time I've ever had. The competition was 
just as strong as in the U.S., but their in- 
side play was much more physical than 
the style we see here." 

The team flew out of JFK Friday even- 
ing, May 19, and arrived in Iceland early 
Saturday morning for a brief layover 
From there, it was on to Luxembourg, 
where they toured the Old Center and 
caught up on some much needed rest. 

On Sunday, the team took the three- 
hour bus ride to Koln, Germany, where 
they played their first game against the 
"Schalke 04" team from Gelsenkirchen. 
LVC led at the half, 55-52, only to fall 
short in the end, 100-112. Ron Fevola '89 
was the Valley's leading scorer with 26 
points. 

After some sightseeing the following 
evening in Koln at the Dom-Cathedral, 
the team was able to record their first 
tour victory defeating "Boyer 04," 126-84, 
behind May graduate Bill Kline's 21 
points and sophomore Melvin Jackson's 
19 points. 

The next stop for the 'Valley men was 
the Netherlands where the team spent 
two days touring in Amsterdam. 'While 
there, the Flying Dutchmen played a 



junior varsity /varsity doubleheader 
basketball game versus the "Sportlife 
Canadians." In the junior varsity tilt. Rod 
Paul '92 and Mr Jackson led the Valley to 
a 74-63 win. In the varsity game, LVC 
came back from a 28-34 half-time deficit 
to defeat the Canadians 78-61. Mr Barlup 
led the way with 16 points and Ken 
Latorre '90 and Mr Jackson each tallied 
13 points. 

The team left the Netherlands early 
Thursday morning and arrived in 
Belgium for a two-day stay. While there, 
the group defeated "BBC Boom" (99-73) 
but lost their second game on the trip to 
"Mercurius" from Antwerpen (96-99). 
The Valley cruised to an easy victory ver- 
sus BBC behind the hot outside shooting 
of Mr Kline who scored 24 points in- 
luding four 3-point field goals. The game 
versus Mercurius was close the entire se- 
cond half before the Valley fell behind. 
Mr Barlup led the Valley with 20 points, 
followed by Mr Fevola's 18 points. 

From Belgium, the Flying Dutchmen 
headed for Paris, France, where they did 
plenty of sightseeing including: the Sacre 
Coeur Church, a bus tour through the ci- 
ty, the famous Champs-Elysees, the Eiffel 
Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Notre 
Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, 
and a show. 

During their final day in Paris, both the 
Flying Dutchmen junior varsity and var- 
sity teams came away with victories. Mr 
Jackson (27 points) and Rod Baughman 



I 





The famous Amsterdam Windmills were among the many European trademarks visited by the team. 



Scaffolding didn't hide the magnificent beauty of 
the Rheims Cathedral in Rheims, France. 

'92 (22 points) led the Valley junior varsi- 
ty to a lop-sided 93-53 victory against 
"C.S. LeLulas" while Mr Kline (17 points) 
and Mr Barlup (16 points) led the varsity 
in their 82-73 victory over "A.S. Bondy." 

The final leg of the team's European 
tour was Germany While there, they 
toured Trier, the oldest city in Western 
Europe, saw the Flying Dutchmen and 
their entourage paying homage to U.S. 
General Patton, and the over 50,000 
soldiers buried at the Luxembourg 
American Cemetary. 

In Germany, the team played their final 
European game against "U.F. Hiefenech," 
the Luxembourg national champions. Mr 
Kline led the way once again with 23 
points as the Flying Dutchmen defeated 
the Luxembourg team 101-90. 

On Thursday, June 1, the team boarded 
a plane in Luxembourg for tfie long flight 
home They arrived back in Annville at 
2:00 a.m., Friday, Jpne 2. 

The trip marked an emotional end of 
retiring head coach Gordie Foster's 
Lebanon Valley career "It was very gratif- 
ing to see our team play so well against 
the stiff European competition, especial- 
ly the national champs from Luxem- 
bourg," said Coach Foster "Our players 
not only performed superbly, but also 
were fine representatives of the College 
and true ambassadors of the United 
States of America."

Alumni Programs Office discovered a 
"plethora" of old yearbooks wasting away, 
unread, in the attic. We have boxes of 
memory-packed books from 1964 
through 1983 (except 1967 and 1969). 

If you would like one (or several!) of 
these yearbooks to complete your collec- 
tion (or replace your old, worn-out 
copy!), send $4.00 to cover postage and 
handling to the Alumni and Parents Pro- 
grams Office, Lebanon Valley College, 
Annville, PA 17003, while supplies last. 
Be sure to specify the year desired.

Have We 
Missed You? 



All Lebanon Valley College alumni 
were recently notified of our upcoming 
new Alumni Directory and asked for 
their input. If you have not already done 
so, please return your questionnaire to- 
day. This will ensure that your personal 
information will be accurately included 
in this great new reference book. 

Within 2 to 3 months, the verification 
phase of this project will begin. Alumni 
will be receiving a telephone call from 
Harris Publishing Company, the official 
publisher of our Directory. Please give 
the representative who calls you a few 
moments of your time to verify your 
listing. To place a reservation for a copy 
of the Lebanon Valley College Directory, 
please advise the Harris representative 
during the conversation, since this will 
be the only opportunity alumni will have 
to order the book. Scheduled for release 
in March/April 1990, the Lebanon Valley 
College Alumni Directory promises to be 
the definitive reference of over 8,716 of 
our alumni. Don't miss the opportunity 
to be part of it!
